I have a few pregnant friends so I am revisiting this ADORABLE stamp from Pink and Main that I found in Maymay’s shop called “Sweet Baby” (hint: it may not be the last time you see it 😉😉). This is my first “no line” coloring attempt by the way and it was so fun!
-Versafine Black Onyx Ink
-Distress Inks in Hello Honey,
-Distress Oxide in Antique Linen
-Prismacolor Color Pencils in:
935, 1085, 1093, 997, 1092, 940, 914, 1012, 915, 916, 1034, 1003, 1002, 1033, 108, 1094, 1051, 1052, 1054, 1082, 1056, 946, 989, 1005, 1097, 938.
-Gamsol & Blending Stumps
-White Gelly Roll Gel Pen
-Stitched Rectangle Dies
-Craft Cardstock, Chartreuse and white cardstock.
I started by inking the images in the Distress Oxide Antique Linen and stamping them off once on scrap paper then stamping them onto my cardstock so I had a nice light image to color. This is key in “no-line” coloring. Then I sat at my kitchen table while my boys played outside and colored these sweet images in and fussy cut them out.
I die cut the green and white panels with layering Stitched rectangle dies.
For the background I smooshed some Distress Ink, Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade and Hello Honey on a sheet of scrap agitate, spritzed it with water and placed my white card panel into it until I was happy with the results. The same for the inside white card panel. Once it was dry I dipped a paintbrush into the watered down Distress Inks and splattered them onto the coordinating color on my panel (see picture - orange splatters on the orange smooshed area and green splatters on the green smooshed areas). Once they are dry it’s time to adhere it all onto the craft card base. I used foam tape behind the sweet baby and the cloud so they popped up a little. I LOVE the lime green/chartreuse colors of this card. I usually go for whit or black backgrounds so this makes me very happy! I hope you give it a try crafty friends! Thanks for stopping by Maymay Made It’s blog!
